Over here in the US of A it’s the Thanksgiving holiday; that special time of year when we briefly lay down our assault rifles in order to stuff ourselves full of even more high caloric food than usual. Once we awaken from our food comas, we then consecrate the celebration through our indigenous shopping ritual, Black Friday. Usually, this season of unbridled consumption is only good for acquiring some heartburn and a mediocre deal on some clothing or electronics. This year, however, the idol gods decided to toss some offerings our way.
First up, Black Friday bought us word that Tokyo Psychopath will be making their US debut next Memorial Day weekend at Saboten Con ’23.
We're excited to present Tokyo Psychopath at Saboten Con 2023!
